That's what you are hearing at the moment is the tsunami warning. It's the second time that it sounded tonight. People across the islands in Hawaii have been told that the wave could hit in about 4 hours, just under 4 hours of 7 minutes comes 3 in the morning. It is now a quater past 11. And just gonna be quiet this police car with a loud-hailer.

The police are saying all visitors of Waikiki area return to hotels. Return immediately to your hotel for instructions. This is not a drill- listen to your radio and TV for instructions. So that's what the police are telling people on loud-hailers on the streets, and you are looking at the picture of the road, outside of my hotel, normally a quiet road that runs along a quiet canal and back of Waikiki. But at 20 past 11, here at night, this is now  turning into obviously an evacuaton route for many people who are concerned. We understand on Oahu, which is the island that Honolulu sits, there are 30,000 people in unsafe areas, so they are being told to move half a mile inland. That leaves most of a million or so residents here in safe areas. To what you are talking about here in Waikiki, ...a vertical evacuation. There are a lot of skyscrapers here, a lot of hotels that sit along the Pacific coast, a very beautiful part of the world. They are asking people who are below the third floor to move above the third floor and to listen to their radio and TV for instructions. We've just been down to shops ourseves to get some water and some supplies, come back to the hotel. There are a lot of people out there, a lot pf people talking about it. But also a lot of realism here. People in Hawaii are used to events like this. They are taught from an early age on how to cope with them, there are instructions in the front of the telephone directorory series to what to do when the tsunami siren sounds. I think really most people who are feeling a little jejune... the moment are probably tourists, and there are many  hundreds of thousands of  tourists visit this part of the world every year. A lot of them of course are from Japan. There are a lot of Japanese people here, a very strong Japanese influence in the cuisine as well. Many of those of course jamming phone lines trying to find out news from home.
